gun. let's be honest, they are there, they live in big cities, in apartments, they think the police will be there to protect them. then you live out in kansas, out someplace out in the country, and you know the police won't be there for a half hour no matter how hard you yell, how many 911s you call. you do have to defend yourself, right? >> absolutely. >> they have attitudes. it is country mouse versus city mouse. bloomberg, who i really respect, the mayor of new york, says something, i'm sure the guy in reading, pennsylvania, says okay, big east coaster, tell me how to live. >> he is the wrong person, the absolutely wrong person to be the face of the gun control movement. it really is because of just what you're pointing out. what does that guy in new york city -- and this is where if you have this conversation -- if you lived in new york city, you understand his mindset of not wanting 9 million people armed. >> yeah. >> on new york city. but if what you just pointed out about living in rural america, whether it's kansas, arkansas, you name it, it's different. you're right. you kn
others that remain wounded, paralyzed by guns. i see it on the front lines in my cities and other cities across america. the urgen sill is there. and now, hopefully, more people are seeing if you don't solve this problem, it's going to continue to pop up around our country. and this is the beauty of it in my opinion. this is almost the elegance of it. that the majority of americans, the majority of gun owners, the overall majority of members agree on sensible gun laws that will make a dramatic difference. 74% of nra members agree with most of us that if you have a criminal conviction, that criminals should not be able to buy guns. and even at higher levels, when you think about the reality, that if you are a suspected terrorist in america, you can go to the secondary gun market and buy a weapon and conduct the kind of terrorism we saw in mumbai which was done with automatic and semi-automatic weapons. this is the call of our country. to do what the overall majority thinks is right. one out of every two women murdered with a gun are murdered by an intimate, by someone that they know well.
is to reduce violence in this country and i think back to the reaction after the oklahoma city bombing, the reaction after 9/11. nobody said there was one thing that was going to work. look at how extensive the federal government actions they thought, some worked, some don't. but the feeling was they were worth trying. that was your standard. that's what you said on friday. if it's worth trying, why not do it. that's your position on armed guards and a lot of people would agree with you yet nothing will having to do with gun safety and you seem to excuse the role that guns play in violence in this society. >> the gun is the tool. the problem is the criminal. every police officer that walks the street knows if you want to control violent crime, take violent criminals off the street. you have programs like richmond, virginia, they had one of the worst murder rates in the country until they put out the word if you're a drug dealer on the street with a gun, we're going to pick you up and you're going to federal prison. they changed criminal behavior in that town. they immediately cut murde

, many of them children, in small town and big cities all across america. victims whose much of the time, their only fault was being in the wrong place at the wrong time. in the coming weeks i'll use whatever power this office holds to engage my fellow citizens from law enforcement to mental health professionals, to parents and educators. in an effort aimed at preventing more tragedies like this. because what choice do we have? we can't accept events like this as routine. are we really prepared to say that we're powerless? in the face of such carnage. that the politics are too hard. are we prepared to say such violence visited upon on children year after year is somehow the price of our freedom? >>> with the tragedy in connecticut has put the spotlight on mental health in this country. one mother whose far away from connecticut wrote about the issue that touches her own son. >> my name is liza long, i'm the mother of a mentally ill son. i'm calling my son michael, that's not his real name, he's 13 years old, he's bright, he loves harry potter, he is working on a novel. but when he gets a
thing i experienced similar to this moment was the oklahoma city bombing where another american killed scores of people and you referred to this and used the word change. the word from the president yesterday, as well. as in stark terms a game changer for this country. >> yeah. that was my emotional reaction as a first responder at oklahoma city when i arrived on that scene, a scene 19 children were also killed by another evil american, that things had to change. that this could not be allowed again and similar feelings after 9/11 and i have absolute confidence our government when forced to change will take significant action. after oklahoma city, i was able to tell my children that it was safe for their dad to work in a federal building and after 9/11 i was able to tell my children that it would be safe to fly on a plane. and i think today there are specific things that can be done to make kids safe in school and they involve changes to gun law. >> what would be the first significant change you would like to see? i have a gut check question, would they support an assault on the assaul
on newtown. approximately an hour and a half outside of new york city, newtown, connecticut, is a small commuter town locateded in fairfield kocounty. it is a predominantly middle-class white community with approximately 30,000 people. they have several schools and synagogues and churches and it has a rotary club and basketball league like many other towns, but yesterday, as many of you know, newtown became the latest statistic of what is a disturbing pattern of mass gun violence. a gunman opened up fire against schoolchildren and staff at sandy hook elementary and killing at latest count 20 children and 6 adults. the president addressed the nation yesterday in response to the tragedy. >> as a country, we have been through this too many times, whether it is an elementary school in newtown or a shopping mall in oregon or a temple in wisconsin or a movie theater in aurora or a street coroner chicago, these neighborhoods are our neighborhoods, and these children are our children. >> the newtown police continued to update throughout the day and night. >> we will leave no stone unturned as w
of educator that dawn was? >> well, dawn and i worked in the same system back in the late '90ers for the city of danbury. we were in different buildings but our paths did cross from time to time. just an incredibly brave woman who really had a glow about her. she had a vivaciousness about her. she always put children first. it was very clear in any of her interactions that i saw her or was involved with her that kids were first. for that reason alone, it doesn't surprise me that she took the steps that she took on friday. >> i think for people out there wanting to learn more about dawn and the person she was could look at her twitter feed to find out how proud she was of the school that she was overseeing now and how special the kids were to her there. as you recall your time working together in danbury, that is your town, one thing people may not know around the country is there are police officers at every school today. is that more of the presence of mind for parents or students and educators alike, and how long do you think that that presence might be necessary? >> we have officers in eve
in our city and cities across the country. craig, i'm not going to get into the grading issue. all of us can do a lot more, and president obama -- a lot more on this issue. and president obama acknowledged in his very heartfelt remarks yesterday that we need significant action, we need it now. that we need to put the politics aside. that all of us, as elected officials, local, state, and federal, all have a responsibility to the people of america to take action. we've been through this, as again the president mentioned, a number of different times. i deal with it on a daily basis. and my fellow mayors, mayors like mayor bloomberg and mayor emanuel in chicago or mayor blake in baltimore, kasim reed in atlanta. all of us deal with an daily onslaught of violence. this is what this is about. it's about violence. >> but, mayor, what can we -- what more can we do? specifically, what do we need to be doing that we are not doing right now? >> there are a number of things that we can do. there is no reason, none, zero, for any civilian to have an assault weapon or an assault rifle or an assault-t
this morning? a small city of grief. a state in mourning. a country with new questions about the price of freedom. good morning, everyone. and welcome to "weekends with alex witt." we're calling it a tragedy, but that particular word nor any other could describe what happened on a cold, bright winter morning in newtown, connecticut. i'm afraid the answers we try to provide in the next hour to the most pressing questions will feel inat adequate to all of us, but we'll try with an admitedly heavy heart. here is what we know. there are new details to report among the 28 people dead are 20 schoolchildren, ages 5 to 10, and the gunman, who also killed his mother, prior to the massacre. this is the nation's second deadliest shooting. 33 people died at virginia tech in 2007. at this hour, investigators are working to learn as much as they can about the gunman. he's been identified as 20-year-old adam lanza. so far, authorities have not spoken publicly about a possible motive. ♪ >> the community is in mourning, at least 2,000 gathered for a vigil last night at a local church, lighting candle
in new england this morning, we have a lot of rain further to the south, down around new york city, southern portions of new england, fourth to the north we're dealing with the icy stuff. so the forecast today, it will warm up and roads will improve. but it will be an umbrella day. the west coast is dealing with a big storm and a lot of snow at the high elevations. as far as the forecast goes out there, most of the country today, middle of the nation is fine. traveling on the coasts use caution. >>> we turn to sports now. the sports world stopped and paid tribute to the victims of the sandy hook elementary school shootings. every nfl team took part in a moment of silence before the games began to remember those affected by the tragedy in newtown, connecticut. the new england patriots sent up 26 flares in honor of each victim. in st. louis, players wearing the number 26, met in the middle of the field, held hands, symbolizing the 26 lives lost. new york giants wore s.h.e.s. on their and vick tore cruz found out one of the victims 6-year-old jack pinto, he wrote his name on his shoes
, obviously, any may mayor, particularly in new york city, are thinking about a city lock. we talked about this being a 9/11 situation. it's a chilling phrase, the way we responded to 9/11 having been long-term productive in terms of our resources and in terms of security. my question is to you, how do you you think about making policy in the aftermath of this, that doesn't fall prey, to making those kinds of mistakes? >> well, there be obviously, instances in which governments overreact, or react incorrectly in the wake, in the immediate wake of a national tragedy. and i think it is incumbent upon chief executives, members of the ll legislature to think thoughtfully, to take a deep breath, and gather the facts before rushing forward with a solution or another. i will say, though, with regard to these kinds of shootings and gun violence. i don't think that's our problem. >> right. i think in some respects, we have the opposite problem, when these incidents occur, you hear these voices, as you said, now's not the time to talk about what we do about this. or we don't went to politicize the t
in this country over gun control. president obama promising once again, quote, meaningful action. new york city mayor, a staunch gun control advocate, michael bloomberg who endorsed president obama for presidency, says the issue is his now. >> the president campaigned in '08 on a gun control began, and the only legislation that the president has signed since then, one is the right to carry a gun in national parks where our kids play, and one is the right to carry guns on amtrak. i assume that's to stop the rash of train robberies which stopped back in the 1800s. >> joining me now is jonathan -- i want to put a null screen here, this is from the president of the brady center, and he said this in part, i won't read everything there, but he said in part, we genuinely believe this one is different. it's different because no decent human being can look at a tragedy like this and be outraged by the fact that it can happen in our nation and because this time we're really poised to harness that outrage and create a focused exchange. we know that the outrage and the sadness unfortunately, it will dissip

belltower in 1967. >> mike bloomberg just said at a briefing at city hall in new york that if the president had acted after he said he was going to act after tucson, if something had happened, we would have saved thousands and thousands of lives, that so many people have been killed just in the last two years, more than 24,000 lives from gun violence. not all from illegal guns, but gun violence. so how will this be any different? you are leading the way in the senate. other senators say, but what about the second amendment rights? speak to that. >> all right. think of that. the nra did not bring my prior bill to court at all. they knew it would not survive, that their action would not survive in the courts. i believe that even under the new opinions, the ability to pass some restrictions on these kinds of weapons will be sustained by the court. with respect to the president, i placed a call to him this morning. i'm hopeful that he will return it. i would like to talk to him about it his help many moving forward with this. >> senator, what about the leadership from the white house? i spoke t
capacity clips. new york city mayor michael bloomberg, who has been an outspoken gun control advocate, will make an announcement on gun violence in just a couple of hours. he's calling on the president to take the lead. >> we've got to really question whether military style weapons with big magazines belongs on the streets of america in this day and age. nobody questions the second amendment's right to bear arms but i don't think the founding fathers had the idea that every man, woman and child could carry an assault weapon, and i think the president, through his leadership, could get a bill like that through congress. but at least he's got to try. >> let's bring in dan gross, president of the brady campaign to prevent gun violence. dan, thanks so much for being with us. as you know, this tragedy has struck so deeply at the hearts of americans but at the same time, the nra is not going to go away so let me ask you a strategic question. how do you maximize your chances of getting some meaningful legislation passed in congress? >> i think it comes down to a simple formula which is make
in a new york city hospital to be treated for a blood clot. the clot discovered in a routine follow-up exam yesterday following the concussion after a fall. nbc news robert bazell joins us now live. how's she doing? >> reporter: well, t.j., the actual truth to that is that we don't know. all we have is a statement from her office that says she has a blood clot, followed from the concussion. we don't know where it is. we don't know what kind of shape she is in. there's no dmfrinformation. the secretary's office said nothing more. a lot of doctors i have talked to about this condition in general, the doctors aren't treating her, say it's a little bit suspicious because of the blood clot usually in the brain and you shouldn't treat it with anti-coag ulant drugs. it's a lack of information and lack of information on the condition which is, of course, what everybody wants to know most and the fact that she's being held here over the new year's weekend probably indicates that there's a severity and they're watching her for at least a few days to see how she does. t.j.? >> a lot of doctors, i have
are plementally ill a shouldn't be able to buy a gun and in california in the city of los angeles we're looking at our california registry to see who has a gun and shouldn't have it and we're going after them. >> congressman yarmouth, i want to ask you, because being that you do hale from kentucky, as we look at gun purchases, kentucky ranking number one for americans that have purchased guns. as we talk about the reflections of what can come after newtown, it is not so much about guns as it is about what's deemed as assault weapons in this country and properly defining what are assault weapons and that should be sold to the american people through the bill of rights and the second amendment in honor of that. are you calling for comprehensive action based on what we saw in newtown. what is comprehensive action mean and especially when we know there is 51% of people on the hill that have been funded by the nra for their campaigns to be there? >> we now have a task force headed by mike thompson of california looking into what kind of package the congress might consider. i think the mayor mentione
city. it's two different worlds, two different cultures. >> as you point out, the congressman bringing up other influences around the world. but when you look at the confines. i want to show everybody these numbers. the amount of people that we have lost. guns every year. the numbers are staggering. we're following another shooting that's an apparent murder/suicide in longmont, colorado that has left four people dead, including a child. as we look back in 2004 had the assault weapon ban was in place, there were huge loopholes. how does the congressman ensure that any legislation going forward, if, ed, we get anything, if we get anything, has real are teeth to it? >> well, there aren't as many shootings when we had the assault weapons ban in place. that's a fact. congress can't run from that. i commend the president from doing this in a very timely fashion. but i think what the president and the commission need to do is talk to the gun advocates. bring the national rifle association into the association. conversation. ask them what would they do? they're against everything, but ask them

three weeks after the oklahoma city bombing former president george h bush resigned as agents were called jackbooted thugs. do you think that other lawmakers will take bold steps away from the nra or stay put? >> in a word, no. as a matter of fact i think those who have made steps away from the nra will probably make bold steps back to the nra because they know it is the politicly expedient thing to do. we have a continuation of the massacres that occur periodically in this country and nobody seems to be willing to do anything. even if they come up with another assault weapons ban. the last one was so full of loopholes that it was basically meaningless. >> we will have you guys back a little later in the show. >>> and i want to show you this video from moments ago. this is president obama and the first lady attending the memorial service for the late senator inouye going on right now in hawaii. >>> coming up he is the leading of the gop and the senate. mitch mcconnell seems to be getting a little nervous about the rumblings around ashley judd's political intentions. >>> in 1823 one
a plane into new york city with us inside firing away as we go down. as you said, it's chilling. it's eerie. when you hear a quote like that you can no longer deny the connection between these rampage shooters and suicide terrorist ands it seems pretty clear if eric harris had been influenced by islamic fundamentalism he would have wanted to be one of those pilots crashing a plane into the world trade center. >> the other question so many people have, professor, and i don't know if there will be an answer is why that school? he did apparently go there for a brief time, but that was years ago and there are reports that his mother was a teacher there were untrue, why target little kids? >> well, one of the things when you do this comparative analysis between suicide terrorists on the one hand and rampage shooters on the other hand is you can start to learn about both groups more accurately, and what i would say is when you see suicide terrorists they often target random, innocent strangers, even children to get that attention and what i would speculate here is that adam lanza knew tha
